What a fun day
Well first off it has taken me 5 minutes to get Blogger to only put 2 pictures on instead of 4 of each picture so I am not going to play with the placement of the pictures or anything.
the first picture was during the talk - It is very similar to the picture on Jane's Blog because I handed her my camera and asked her to take the picture because I had heads in front of me. The Second picture is my socks Ala Yarn Harlot and her traveling sock photos.
Turns out my worry about working on my socks was for nothing - Ann was working on a sock when we got there.(Kitchenering the toe [geeze is that an actual word or did I just get on a roll with it] and trying it on when it was done. Then, later during the talk, I was reminded again that working on moody blues socks while wearing a denim blue dress is not something you should do -- so I put it down and just had a ball.
I cannot believe that there were 4 or 5 members of Knitters Review there. In our little town and at a knitting author talk - And one, Deborah, was all the way from Annapolis, MD. How fun is that. And I got to meet Kathy who I have only talked to online before.
I must must must do some of the Moss Grid hand towels from the book - I loved them in the book but in person yummmm -- I really really loved them. So I am on a search for the Euroflax needed for that.
And what fun -- when I introduced myself I said my name and then said rho1640 -- they both said at the same time "from comments" Now I will choose to believe they were happy to see me -- not that I am some crazed stalker type they can't forget hehehe
Now I took some allergy pills a little while ago and my brain seriously starting to fuzz up. So I will just finish with -- Buy the book, play with the projects - make them your own (they talked about how people were doing that on the Knit Along site and how they enjoyed it) And if you ever get a chance to go to one of their talks --- GO!!!!
And I'm sorry I couldn't figure out how to link to other blogs - I had it figured out a few days ago but tonight it just didn't want to work for me.
